* ''Series/ICarly'' is the spiritual successor to ''DrakeAndJosh''.
** Also ''DrakeAndJosh'' itself is the spiritual successor of ''KenanAndKel''.
** It could be said that "DrakeAndJosh" was much more a spiritual successor of ''TheAmandaShow'', to the point of being a very indirect spinoff. Drake and Josh were regular cast members on ''The Amanda Show''. ''The Amanda Show'' itself, and the aforementioned ''Kenan and Kel'', were both spiritual successors to ''Series/AllThat''.
** ...which was a spiritual successor to Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s other sketch comedy series of the early [[TheNineties Nineties]], ''{{Series/Roundhouse}},'' which was an updated version of the network's fondly remembered ''Series/YouCantDoThatOnTelevision,'' which itself, was inspired by network [[VarietyShow variety shows]] such as ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and
''Series/RowanAndMartinsLaughIn'' (see a few entries below).
* ''Series/{{Victorious}}'' could be considered the spiritual successor of ''Zoey101'' since it starred the latter series regular cast member Victoria Justice and came from the same creator (Dan Schneider), but in plot it was more the successor of ''Fame'' and {{Nickelodeon}}'s own ''Taina'', and in style and tone, ''Series/{{iCarly}}'', also from Schneider.

* ''Series/{{Chuck}}'', in a lot of ways, is a combination Spiritual Successor. Take one part ''Jake20'' (everyday geek infused with AppliedPhlebotinum to make him a badass), one part ''SheSpies'' (a borderline AffectionateParody of the spy genre), mix well, top with Creator/AdamBaldwin, and serve.

* ''Series/AngieTribeca'' is a [[Film/TheNakedGun naked]] attempt to revisit ''Series/PoliceSquad'' in the age of [[Franchise/CSIVerse police procedurals,]] to the point where longtime ZAZ fans will recognize many of the same gags.

* ''Series/ReedBetweenTheLines'' is intended to be a new millennium version of ''TheCosbyShow''. Both shows even have Malcolm-Jamal Warner in starring roles.
* ''Series/HannahMontana'' is this to ''LizzieMcGuire'', due to the show's lead MileyCyrus having Music/HilaryDuff as her idol and reason why the show was made.

** ''ShakeItUp'' is the spiritual successor of ''HannahMontana''.
** ''ShakeItUp'' is also something of a spritual successor of LaverneAndShirley when you consider its creator used to be a writer on the latter.

* ''TwinPeaks'' was a SpiritualSuccessor to an unrealised Mark Frost/David Lynch plan to dramatise the life of Marilyn Monroe. Both stories featured the mysterious death of a beautiful blonde with a murky secret life, all recounted in a secret diary. Lynch's film ''BlueVelvet'' could also be considered the spiritual ancestor of ''TwinPeaks''.
